Say Whaaaat!?

We all hear things that friends and family say to us or just say in general that we don't expect them to say. I like to call them, "Say Whaaaat?!" quotes. Just thought I'd share with ya quotes from friends and family. Things  said that made me do double takes, left me rolling on the floor cracking up, or just left shocked and speechless. Enjoy.

1) "Josh, next time eat more calm and civilized." - Joseph (8 yr old bro)- while having lunch at Arby's after church

2) "Wait. Are you adopted?!"- Michelle (a best friend)

3) "Aren't you adopted Josh?"- Jess (a friend)

4) "Hey Joe! Hey Joe!"- Jasmine (5 yrs old sis)
    "What Jazz?"- Joseph- Joseph

    "You know that you're a sinner, but Jesus died for you."- Jasmine

5) "You know Austin. I just feel like that Lord is calling me to wait until I get married to move down to Louisville." -Me (I said this jokingly).

 "Then you'll never move down to Louisville then!" - Austin R. ( a best friend)

6) "Josh? Do you ever get blacker in the summer?"- Lauren H. (a friend)

7) "So Josh, are you going to Somalia soon?"- Josiah K. (a friend)

8) "Man Josh. Your voice sounds like deep rich chocolate!"- Josiah k (after hearing my voice for the 1st time after vocal chord surgery)

9) "Josh! Your black!?"- Matt H.(a friend) (after realizing, after the longest time of knowing me, that I'm half black)

10) "Hey brother! Oh wait. You're not my brother!" Joel M. (a best friend) -after I answered his brother's phone.

Gonna Write a Book Ya'll

 So a good friend of mine has sold me. After telling me, or to put it more correctly, persuading me to write a book; I've decided I will. A book about what? Hmmm. Not sure yet. That has yet to be determined, but I sure do have some ideas floating around in my head. Like:

1.) a book on the grace of God

2.) a book on evangelism

3.) a book on the gospel (there's a lot of those tha have been written though)

4.) a book about learning and talking biblical doctrine and theology and living it out

 These are just a couple ideas floating around in my head. So pleas pray that Lord will show me what he wants me to write about.

Why write a book?

 Why write a book? That is a good question. Maybe a better question would be what is the motivation behind wanting to write a book? Well this is  my motivation: "Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing" 1 Thessalonians 5:11. I want whatever I write about to be a blessing to the body of Christ. To encourage and buildup the body all to praise and glory of God!

 So I'll keep you guys posted and updated on this. I'm excited to see what the Lord will have me to write and share with the body of Christ, with you all!

grace & peace,
